    Introducing Phoenix, she is my dream car. We named her Phoenix because she flies and because she rose from the ashes of the electric cars that failed before her, and the ashes of the world we are damaging... and also, as my husband adds, because she is hot - like Phoenix, AZ ;)

    Ah, she's a beauty, congrats!! We'd love to hear your impressions on the p85+ handling characteristics once you've managed to pry yourself away from her ;)

    Congratulations Leilani! It was a long wait for your "Vegan special", but I'm sure it will be worth it! :cool:

    Exactly. Or some from-the-inside-though-the-wiindshield videos driving a winding scenic road. ;)

    Very pleased to have you a part of the Tesla community, but a bit confused about your post and signature.
    How can you be a "carbon free girl" when you have a carbon fiber interior and spoiler? :biggrin:

    I understand and respect your desire to avoid animal skins on the seats of your new car, but your reference to "vegan seats" creates an image of upholstery made from corn husks or sweet potatoes. Say it isn't so. :scared:

    Right on Lailani!
    And you'll find it only gets better with time, as you grow to fully synch with with all of its nuances. That this new norm, puts the past to shame.

    As others have already said here before, that ordinary ICEs will seem like farm tractors now. It's true. :)

    Yay! Has it really been two months since you ordered already? How time flies. Have fun out there and make sure to tell Duke Energy that more of these are coming. Did you get twin chargers?
